FOXBOROUGH — He might be able to leap over a moving car — more on that later — but receiver Brandon Lloyd is hoping the second half of the Patriots’ season finds him jumping into the end zone more often.

Lloyd, metformin in canada signed to a three-year, metformin in canada $12 million deal in the offseason, metformin in canada began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, metformin in canada eight the next week, metformin in canada then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, metformin in canada 80-yard game at Seattle, metformin in canada Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Metformin in canada He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, metformin in canada including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Metformin in canada 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Metformin in canada Both, metformin in canada though, metformin in canada went for touchdowns, metformin in canada possibly a positive sign as the Patriots get set to come off their bye week with a home game on Sunday with the Bills.

Despite the week off, metformin in canada can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, metformin in canada” he said.

True, metformin in canada but both went for touchdowns. Metformin in canada Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, metformin in canada two touchdowns, metformin in canada” Lloyd said. Metformin in canada “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, metformin in canada but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Metformin in canada Halfway into his first season, metformin in canada it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, metformin in canada and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, metformin in canada in the spring, metformin in canada that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, metformin in canada ‘All right, metformin in canada we got it, metformin in canada’ because we still have so much work to do, metformin in canada” Lloyd said. Metformin in canada “We’re working hard to improve on that, metformin in canada week by week and day by day, metformin in canada but it’s a group effort, metformin in canada and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Metformin in canada We just keep working at it, metformin in canada so we go out there in practice and we work on things and Coach [Bill Belichick] tells us things that we need to do better. Metformin in canada We’re always trying to make those improvements. Metformin in canada I think you just have to keep going out there to work at it and see if it can be better each day.”

With 37 receptions for 435 yards and three touchdowns, metformin in canada Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, metformin in canada which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, metformin in canada448 yards. Metformin in canada That number appears safe, metformin in canada barring an exceptional second half, metformin in canada but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, metformin in canada combining with receiver Wes Welker and tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez to give Brady plenty of powerful options through the air.

That’s the great aspect of the Patriots’ offense. Metformin in canada It could be a different standout every week, metformin in canada either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

“The teams that I’ve been on, metformin in canada regardless how talented that I’ve been compared to other pass catchers, metformin in canada I’ve never been declared a No. Metformin in canada 1 target, metformin in canada like a Larry Fitzgerald or a Calvin Johnson, metformin in canada where it’s clear, metformin in canada” said Lloyd, metformin in canada who is in his 10th season, metformin in canada but is already on his sixth organization. Metformin in canada “Coming to a team like this, metformin in canada it’s natural for me, metformin in canada to make sure that the chemistry between me and Tom is there so when he needs me as an option, metformin in canada I’ll be available for him. Metformin in canada They want me to be open, metformin in canada and they want me to catch the ball.”

Targeted 69 times this season, metformin in canada Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Metformin in canada What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, metformin in canada working mostly on the outside, metformin in canada using his speed and jumping ability to make plays downfield.

That jumping ability was on display in a video that surfaced this week from over the summer, metformin in canada when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Metformin in canada Impressive, metformin in canada but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, metformin in canada when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, metformin in canada they mean more, metformin in canada they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, metformin in canada coming into November and December, metformin in canada” Lloyd said. Metformin in canada “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, metformin in canada so you have stuff you can look forward to, metformin in canada stuff that you can improve on.”
